What does acupuncture treatment involve?
After a diagnosis has been made you’ll receive a treatment plan, which may include lifestyle and dietary advice as well as acupuncture. For the acupuncture itself very thin sterilized disposable needles are used so the experience is almost entirely free of discomfort.
Energy flows range across the whole body so needles won’t always be used where the pain is. For example if you’re suffering from headaches they might be used in your feet. Depending on the diagnosis a gentle electrical stimulation of the needles or the burning of Moxa (a herb) may be used to enhance the effects of the treatment.
What does an acupuncture assessment involve?
Acupuncture focuses on you as an individual, so as well as discussing symptoms your assessment will include questions about your medical history, sleeping pattern, appetite, digestion and emotional well-being. Sometimes your acupuncturist will perform physical examinations such as observing your movements, taking your pulse, examining your tongue and feeling for areas of muscular tension or pain.
